Summit Semester trains students to live well by worshipping God with their head, heart, and hands.
Summit Semester combines top-tier academic training in a discipleship-focused environment. Semester offers students an extraordinary opportunity for growth and for excellence. Students will be taught to worship God with their head (truth), heart (relationships), and hands (practical living).
- Truth: Students will learn from some of the nation’s top Christian scholars to help them understand how to think well and Christianly.
- Relationship: Summit Semester staff will help nurture each student’s spiritual formation while forming genuine relationships with fellow classmates.
- Practical Living: Students will learn what it looks like to form good habits and live like a Christian in their day-to-day lives.
Summit Semester is a one-of-kind, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Students will live in a retreat environment in the San Juan Mountains of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Over the course of the semester, students will be removed from distractions they encounter on a daily basis. This discipline will help students evaluate the culture, themselves, and how they may live out their God-given identities. By taking this time of retreat, students will be more prepared to make a difference in the world as they re-engage upon their graduation from Semester.

“You really can’t compare Semester to the Student Conference. Yes, they have similarities but they are also completely different. As far as how Semester helped me… let me put it to you like this. If Christ is my anchor, Summit Semester is the chain that has held me to Him. I went through a really hard loss last year with the sudden death of my younger brother. What I learned in the classroom and in the community is what kept me from walking away from my faith.
